[Solved] How to connect the arm (first time Arduino user here)
After assembling the kit, I cannot connect to the board with Arduino IDE (v1.8.15), even after having downgraded SAMD driver version to 1.8.10 ( https://www.jjrobots.com/community/postid/12608/)
From the docs, I do not have a “Genuino” board, but a “Arduino Zero (Native USB Port)”
All I have is a red light in the board and the message “Forcing reset using 1200bps open/close on port COM3”
What can I do?
Unsure if the edit function has worked, I post it here: At the end I wasn’t plugging the dc, thinking that the usb power was enough (there was movement after all).
Maybe it is, and what happened is that the laptop usb power was not sufficient.
Anyway, connecting the dc plug (and using the SAMD previous versions, although I don’t know if it is necessary) the connection works.
@ggerard Yes, it looks like your laptop computer was not capable of delivering enough current. Good catch!
